Default running diffrent size tires F & R.

I put this on Drivetrain thread. here too

will it torn off the tranny? I'm thinking to run 215-45-17 front, 225-45 17 rear.
how bad can it be? I know that it won't be good, running diffrent ratio on F-R on AWD car like Suby w/ center Diff. but I saw many people does it with DSM, Nissan and Bimmer even comes with wide rear. I'm just very curious..

You probably need four.


But I think you should try out the different size tires and post your results.

center diffs are cheap, and any fool with a wrench set can rebuild a transmission.

how bad can it be? waters a liquid, it should be a fine substitute for oil.

fwiw, AWD cars with staggered wheel fitments from the factory (think 911 carrera 4, X5, etc) are geared for it from the factory. DSM's shouldn't be running staggered tires; my friend bought a DSM and the center diff was blown b/c the previous owner had run staggered wheels/tires.
